Throughout the whole process leaders have been excellent, giving us great advise, very quick and efficient communication, understanding our needs and working hard on our behalf. Every member of staff I've spoken to is friendly and professional whilst also treating us in a personal manner. We've gotten used to letting agents treating us very badly in Brighton and were bowled over by the attitude of the staff here. One of the main selling points of the flat we now rent is that we knew we'd be in safe hands with leaders as they also manage the maintenance of the property. Being right by forest hill station means they are easy to contact, as do their weekend opening times.
